John Adams to Abigail Adams
May 18 1789
My dearest Friend
I am in such a situation that I cannot see the way clear for you to come on, till some resolution is passed in the House.— You will be as ready as you can, and I will write you the Moment
to come on. any Thing is done.— I will resign my office rather than bring you here to be miserable.
RC (Adams Papers); addressed: “Mrs Adams / Braintree.”
